We know that, in the West, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and other individuals have established their own space launch companies ( with Musk being heavily subsidised by the state via Nasa ).
Now a Chinese company, Landspace, has attempted to launch a rocket and failed.
The three-stage ZQ-1 rocket took off, but the third stage malfunctioned. The rocket, carrying a satellite, was launched on Saturday in perfect sky conditions. Landspace said that "something abnormal happened after the second stage".

I hope that they took out a repair or replacement policy with Domestic and General.
They just fixed my 15 year old oven, although it took two weeks to get the four major parts needed.

If not reparable they provide a new unit.

By the way, I am still on BST plus 12 minutes.
I suppose I'll change my time eventually.

Regards,
David

P.S.
I changed my time just now by an hour.
However, the equation of time difference today is about 16.4 minutes, almost the maximum value.
